Junior Dos Santos Calls Out Alistair Overeem After UFC Adelaide

Junior Dos Santos calls out former title contender Alistair Overeem following his latest win under the UFC banner inside of the Octagon. The former UFC heavyweight champion scored a second round TKO win over Tai Tuivasa in the UFC Adelaide headliner. This fight went down on Saturday night at Adelaide Entertainment Centre in Adelaide, South Australia on FOX Sports 1.

Following the fight, he made it perfectly clear who he wants to fight next. This comes after the fact that he listed three names including Overeem as potential opponents while leading up to this fight. The other names were Cain Velasquez and Stipe Miocic.

The first fight between JDS and Overeem came back at the UFC on FOX 17 event where Dos Santos was knocked out in 2015. Although he sees himself winning any of those rematches, he thinks a fight against Overeem makes the most sense right now.

“I see myself winning all those fights,” dos Santos said (h/t to MMAFighting). “So, I think this rematch would make a lot of sense now. Overeem is a smart guy. Every time he asks for something, it’s because he thinks it’s going to be better for him. I don’t do that type of shit. I’m asking for him because it makes sense. In my mind, it makes sense to do this rematch right now.”

At the end of the day, Dos Santos is on a certain path which is to get to a title shot. This is a title that held in 2011 and 2012 but eventually lost it to Cain Velasquez.

“I won’t accept any of my defeats,” dos Santos said. “I really believe that I have everything that it takes to be No. 1 in this division. And I want to prove it. I want to show all you guys that I’m right.”

Junior Dos Santos eyes fight against former UFC heavyweight champions Cain Velasquez and Stipe Miocic leading into his next fight. He’s actually fought Velasquez three times.

First, JDS beat him by KO in just 64 seconds at the first UFC on FOX event. However, he dropped losses to Velasquez at both UFC 155 and UFC 166. He’s also looking to get revenge against Miocic and Alistair Overeem. If you recall, he suffered a loss to Miocic at UFC 211 and Overeem at UFC on FOX 17. JDS talked about wanting to get his chance at these fighters once again in a recent interview.

“That would be great to have a fourth fight with Velasquez,” Dos Santos said (H/T to MMAMania). “No doubt I would love to fight him again, I would love to fight Miocic again. And maybe even Alistair Overeem. He did great in his last fight, so maybe we can have also a rematch. I wanna fight this guy.”

UFC Adelaide (also known as UFC Fight Night 142) is set to take place on Sunday, December 2, 2018 at Adelaide Entertainment Centre in Adelaide, South Australia. At this show, he’s expected to fight Tai Tuivasa in the headliner. He continued by stating that he wants to fix the mistakes that he made in these previous fights.

“Because in my mind I committed mistakes in those fights. That’s why they won. They are not better than me. And if they think that’s done, it’s not done. The only way it’s done is if they go away like Cain Velasquez is doing – going away. Then it’s done. If they stay here and they fight in the UFC, it’s not done and I’m coming for them.”

Alistair Overeem made a statement at UFC Fight Night Beijing last weekend (Nov. 24, 2018) when he knocked out Sergey Pavlovich in the first round to snap a two-fight skid.

Both Overeem and Derrick Lewis are top-ranked heavyweights. Albeit they have reached the division’s elite in very different ways. Overeem is one of the best strikers to ever grace the UFC’s heavyweight division. While Lewis is a feared striker in his own right, he is far less technical.

Regardless, a fight between these two big men could be an interesting one. You have Overeem who is coming off of an impressive KO of the previously unbeaten Pavlovich. And Lewis is fresh off of a loss in his recent title fight against Daniel Cormier at UFC 230.

It looks as if Overeem is interested in fighting “The Black Beast” as a recent tweet would indicate:

With his win last weekend Overeem improves to 3-2 in his last five fights. The Dutchman is a perennial top-five contender and seemingly getting better with age.

As for Lewis, he is coming off of a loss to the ‘Double Champ’ just four weeks ago. Although he didn’t look good in that outing, Lewis did win an incredible nine of 10 fights just before that.
